Alex watches the latest Sword Art Online episode whilst Lain walks in on him.
Lain: So how’s the finale?
Alex: I think I would have preferred supporting Peter Jackson over watching this.
Lain: Ouch. By the way, where’s Michael?
Alex: I had him go with the Hashimotos to see the new Hobbit movie because that was the only way to convince Akemi to change her mind about not joining her dad this go-around.
Lain: Is he a fan of those movies?
Meanwhile, at the ticket line…
Senya: I think I would have preferred going on my own.*
Akemi: Well, at least he’s not dressed as Gandalf.*
